Hearts That Bleed or Good Life?

Hey everyone!

Honestly, sometimes it's hard to keep my cool sometimes with people. Someone hacked a friend of mine's facebook and said really cruel things. When he saw what was said, he apologized and explained his account was hacked. That's still dumb that people hack other people's accounts. Some people clearly need to grow up.

Another thing I'm having issues with is being unemployed. Yes I have been looking like crazy and if something doesn't come up soon I will have to see if a friend of mine is hiring at DQ. It's not my 1st choice but I need an income.

So I actually got a request to do an Avril inspired video. Which is exciting because I actually love her. This is actually a very different look to what she usually wears - it's not a dark eye! It's very grey but does have some of her trademark dark liner. I didn't do the under the eye smokey part because not many people can pull it off - like myself. I did change it a bit, but for the better I feel.

This is actually what I did instead of going to paint ball.

Wedding talk, rumours and a new video!

Hey everyone!

Sometimes people make me laugh with their rumours about me. It use to really bother me, but it doesn't anymore. It bothered me mostly because of who it was and now I'm just kind of use to it. I laugh now.

Latest rumour:
I'm moving to Montreal.

There's a couple things wrong with this.
1 - I don't speak French.
2 - The one who started this rumour, I don't talk to her.

I'm not sure what encouraged this rumour. I mean I do have a friend that is going to school in Montreal and I visited her in March. I def wanna go back because the shopping there is not to be believed. I'd love to move there, but the language is kind of an issue. Yes I'm Canadian but I'm not great in French.

Well that's that.

Also lately a friend of mine nd I have been talking about weddings. Neither of us are engaged but we both watch a lot of wedding shows. So today we started talking about ideals for when we get married. [meaning if it was up to us completely - we both agree the guy should have plenty to say!]

I've learnt how to cut costs because of a few friends of mine have gotten married and they paid for it themselves. [except one, but that's a diff story]

Makeup I actually did nd wore to my friend's wedding.

Doing her makeup - best friend and the bride :]

People say different things about where you should spend your money. Dress, photographer, flowers, etc. Personally, I'd probably get a dress that wasn't too pricey and then go more expensive for shoes. After all, you probably won't wear the dress again but the shoes you definitely can.

What are your opinions on weddings? I love hear different opinions!


So I decided to turn this into a series. Guru's on youtube are those who are really good, get lots of views and possibly partners on youtube [ie; get paid a certain amount from youtube]

Of course they're going to inspire people! Just to show my appreciation to those I watch lots, I

So I get a few questions often and so I'm taking this blog to answer them!

Feel free to ask more, I may end up doing a video if I get lots!

1. What are you?
Physically I'm a human female. Genetically I'm my parents.
But if we're going into specifics - as in nationality, etc - then here's the list:
German, Dutch, English, British, Irish, Scottish, Welsh.
This actually should explain lots.

2. Are you actually a makeup artist?
YES I AM! I got my certification last November.
I would post a photo here but it says my full name and I would prefer people who come across this not know specifics. Safety reasons.

3. Do you still talk to *insert name here*?
This question gets thrown around with a few people, but anyone that asks me this about certain people - the answer is no.

4. Do you want to?
Given the way things have ended a few times and the dramarama I went through, I would say no. My name had been tarnished because of a couple people. [however, karma pulled through and one of them actually heard one of the rumours ... idk what happened after that]

5. You use to be a party girl, why did you stop?
I was? Well I guess I enjoyed going out and having a few drinks. I was a regular at a certain bar. I stopped going because of a few reasons - work, drama, money - but I do go out sometimes still.

6. Why did you stop doing videos on youtube?
I haven't. Just taking a break because I wasn't getting great feedback. Besides, I had no time for awhile. I will again soon!

7. If you're into makeup, why don't you work for a company like MAC or Sephora?
Can I just mention that when this question comes up, people are usually rude about it.
Also I cannot force people to give me a job. It's very tempting and I wish I could, but I can't.

8. Why do you spend so much on makeup?
Short answer: because I can.
Long answer: I actually don't spend much on certain products.
I like MAC shadows because they've very pigmented but I don't buy the whole line.
I spend a lot on brushes because they are my tools that I use consistantly.
If I can find a similar colour for cheaper, I go that route. I'm also very picky.

9. What do you smell like?
I get this question from random people and it kind of weirds me out. However, mostly when I'm asked this I'm wearing my Betsey Johnson perfume. Only sold at Winners now ... sadly.

10. Why do you spend so much on clothes?
I really don't. I buy usually on sale and I don't buy high-end brands unless there's a good sale. A few things I splurge on - like dress pants nd bras. Dress pants because I have such an issue with sizing, so if it fits I'll buy. Lol! Bra's because I don't buy them unless I've had to toss one.

11. Why do you dye your hair so often?
First it's called "colouring" my hair. Second, my hair is surprisingly healthy.
Besides, it's my hair.

12. You go so often with bare nails, then colour them neon. Why?
My nails are never bare. When they seem bare, it's just I have a nude colour on in just one coat. Sally Hansen stuff that my friend got me, helps strengthen my nails. I love neon colours.

Anyways that's all I've got for now. I guess I seem sort of rude in these answers but honestly, most are from people I don't know or nosey.

Feel free to ask me questions! I won't be rude haha!

Long Weekend Made Longer!


Last friday was July 1st - Canada Day - and today is July 4th - Independence Day. I celebrate Canada Day [since I'm Canadian, in case you didn't know] but a lot of people also celebrate July 4th. It's an important weekend for everyone.

I spent most of the weekend celebrating.
Friday -
Woke up early to head downtown. The Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge - aka William and Kate - and we got there JUST as the motor cade drove up with them. For the record, we only went because my boyfriend is a fan of Great Big Sea and they were playing.

Speeches, music, heat exhaustion.

I almost passed out on the bus. Luckily my friend had a granola bar in her bag to tide me over before we went for lunch.

Matt[boyfriend] and I headed home after lunch, hung out, had a couple of drinks before and with dinner. Headed out again.

Met with my friend Dalia and the 3 of us headed to KRC hill [which is not Parliament Hill but has great venue. More family friendly, concerts, food, rides, etc] We met up with our other friends - Sam, Kyle, Steph and Matt J - to watch concert and fireworks. Here's a few photos!

whole group

This would be Matt and I

Matt, Dalia and I - he's kind of a goof

Dalia and I

So afterwards the buses were being absolutely stupid, we had to taxi home. At this point we were so exhausted.

Saturday -
Got to sleep and get ready slowly but still headed out relatively early.
Matt and I went to his mum and step-dad's place before heading to his aunt and uncle's place. Met a bit of his family; snacks, beers, food, chatting, random music. It was fun! I think they like me? I'm not sure, it was the 1st time meeting them. Matt thought I'd be nervous but even though I usually am when meeting new people, with his family I haven't been nervous so far. I'd say that's a good thing. Haha!

Got home and chatted with my mum for a bit then crashed.

Sunday -
Super thankful that we have AC and that our plans weren't until later. By 10am, it was already really humid. Slept late, lounged most of the day then headed to Kyle's place around dinner. He was hosting a BBQ. Sadly no photos. Didn't get home until late and pretty much crashed right away because Matt has to be up early during the week.

So that was my weekend. Pretty go-go-go but that's fine.

I realized I forgot to mention something I did last week! PAiNTBALL!
It wasn't as bad as I thought, but of course the 1st hit I got - which was within the 1st 5mins of 1st game ... - was in the thumb. There was a nice scratch and bruise for awhile. The worst is when the paintball hits ground and bounces on you or bounces on you and just doesn't break. I have a nice huge bruise on my thigh [barely there now] from that.

Of course you walk away with battle wounds but adrenaline runs through your veins during the game that you don't realize how exhausted/hot/etc you are until the last game.

You can wear your own clothes - which is what I did - but they offer coveralls for those who don't want to. The company takes photos, so I took a photo off the site of both Matt and I [FYI - we went with his work]

I'm the one standing awkwardly in the grey shirt. This was probably 3rd game? I was hiding behind a barrier.

This is Matt hiding on a bridge. Thought this looked cool.

That's it for me.
